Western Subalpine Warbler The Nothe

This one was rather unusually arboreal, making it very difficult to photograph. After spending a couple of hours the day before checking all the likely low lying bushes this bird was located the next day after being heard singing from the treetops (Thanks Mo)
Quite saturated all the way down, probably more so than suggested by the photos

This was a bonus lurking quietly in the canopy that would never have been spotted in a million years if we hadnt been straining for over an hour to get a decent photo of the subalp.
